Daisy Bee - Spectrum Noir ColourTint and Prismacolor pencils colouring by Leigh!

Hiya Creative Friends
I love Spring in southern California🌸
The riot of colourful wildflowers everywhere is a beautiful sight, especially the wild daisies which were the inspiration for my latest release, Daisy Bee🐝

 For today's inspiration I'm sharing Daisy Bee all coloured up with Spectrum Noir ColourTint pencils and Prismacolor pencils with white gel pen highlights.

These are the colours of the wild daisies surrounding my home, aren't they beautiful!  It was so relaxing to loose myself in the pure joy of colouring up all those petals🌸

 I printed Daisy Bee out onto a sheet of Spectrum Noir premium pencil cardstock trimmed to 8.5" x 11" to fit my printer, the pad size is 9 x 12 inches.   I watercoloured the daisies, the bee and background with Spectrum Noir ColourTint pencils and Derwent waterbrushes then added detailing and shading with Prismacolor pencils and finished off with white gel pen highlights.  I've matted the finished piece onto black cardstock and will later add a colour coordinating mat ready for framing.

Both of the new designs are available at LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique at a special intro price good thru April 28!
Please note this sale can't be combined with other discounts!
